Crumb Cake Bicycle

This week's color challenge on Splitcoast is to make a card using Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, and the new Raspberry Ripple.  I like how these color challenges keep me out of a rut and help me come up with fresh new cards.  I textured my card base (something that I'm doing a lot of lately) with the polka dot embossing folder.  I added a layer of patterns dsp in Raspberry Ripple mounted on a strip of the same color card stock.  My bicycle is from the Moving Forward set and is stamped in Crumb Cake with Raspberry flowers in the basket and has a bit of patterns dsp in Pink Pirouette below it and is layered on Raspberry and Pink Pirouette card stock.  I added a couple banners cut with the bitty banners framelits (for the Big Shot) and tied a bit of white stitched grosgrain ribbon around the first couple layers.  I love that stitched grosgrain and I think I need it in about every color--I'll be adding some to my order tomorrow :)  The greeting comes from Sassy Salutations and is stamped in Raspberry Ripple.  Have you tried a color challenge yet?
